Plant Type: Indoor Houseplant
Water Requirement: Very little water is required. These drought-resistant plants grow best in hot, dry areas and excessive water could cause them to rot. Water regularly but allow soil to dry out before watering again. During the winter months, water only enough to keep the leaves from shriveling.
Fertilizer Requirement: Feed monthly with a half-strength of a liquid fertilizer during the growing season. No fertilizer is needed late in fall and winter.

- Aloe leaves contain a clear gel that’s a popular home remedy. According to the Mayo Clinic, this substance may shorten the healing of first- and second-degree burns and promote wound healing.
- Plant in a terra cotta pot with well-drained soil.
- Aloe plants also produce new, smaller “babies” perfect for propagation. Detach them from the mother plant by severing it with a clean knife. Take care not to break the roots as you do this. Set it on a clean, dry shelf to let it callous over for a couple of days. Then repot it in a small pot.
- When in doubt, water less, not more. When aloe is overwatered, the roots begin to rot, and the plant eventually dies. It’s better to wait a few extra days if you’re not sure whether it’s time to water.
